Isabella Sands (Schooner), collision, 20 May 1876

Full Text

ACCIDENT. -- The schooner ISABELLA SANDS, wheat laden from Port Washington for Buffalo, reached here yesterday in a damaged condition. When off Point aux Becs Scies, about nine o'clock Saturday morning, weather very thick, a large schooner, which proved to be the DANIEL E. BAILEY, downward bound from Chicago, was discovered almost dead ahead. She striking the SANDA a glancing blow near the mizzen rigging on the starboard side, taking out two shrouds and a chain-plate, and breaking the main crosstrees. The shock also threw one of the BAILEYS anchors from her bow upon the cabin of the SANDS, breaking several planks, and in going over the stern it carried away a davit, while one of the flukes went through the bottom of the small boat. So says the Milwaukee Sentinel of today.
